Harry Constable: In His Own Words

by Bill Hunter
£10.00   paperback  Living History Library (2017)

Harry Constable: In His Own Words by Bill Hunter Dockers set the pace for all the gains in wages and conditions during the 1940s and 50s. Most of their battles, against their bosses, the government and sometimes their own union, were led by rank and file committees. Harry Constable was one of their leaders who became known and respected among workers in all the major docks in Britain.
 
“Every docker filled with pride,
when they had Harry by their side.
In London or in Merseyside,
no honour could be greater.”
 
~ Alun Parry,
Liverpool singer/songwriter

 
This book contains Harry's recollections of growing up in London's East End, his working life and political experience, that made him one of the most outstanding and talented leaders in the unofficial trades union movements after the Second World War.
